Well, folks! It’s my last day in the office before hitting the road beach-bound, and although I sort of hate to admit that since I know a lot of you will be stuck in the office next week, I can’t help but hope that this announcement encourages you to put a little getaway of your own on the calendar. John is actually staying put for this trip to keep an eye on our pack of furry kiddos and to save his vacation days for a beach trip with his family later this season, so I’m sure I’ll be Snapping and ‘Graming all week long so that he has a chance to see what my sister, mom, dad, and I are getting up to. In case you want to keep up, too, feel free to follow along by clicking through to Snapchat and Instagram with those links.
Since I won’t be around next week and plan to completely shut down in order to get some much-needed distance from my computer, I thought I’d share a handful of links to Dream Green DIY projects of yore that spark fond memories. Here’s hoping that they serve as inspiration for you as you plan out your craft projects for the spring and summer—I have a feeling that it’s going to be the best year yet. Which of these seven projects would you try?
